I cannot contain my excitement with the start of the holiday season! While I’ve begun my gift shopping, I realized I have no idea what I’m wearing to all of my holiday events. So let’s start with shoes! Because why not? You can never have too many pairs of shoes, especially a pair of heels! A party shoe is my favorite kind and I tend to wear them not just with a holiday outfit, but throughout the colder months out. Specifically, color, style, material and price are contributing factors to shopping for holiday shoes. Realistically, you can pick 2 categories that are important to you and run with it.
Let’s chat holiday shoes!
Firstly, finding the right shoes for every occasion is not a simple task. There are so many styles that are on trend at the moment, such as a pair of boots like thigh-high ones, some of the best sandals to wear into the winter are platforms and casual shoes that can be dressed up. Kitten heels, ballet flats and sparkly shoes are some of the best shoes for the holiday season. It’s always a good idea to grab a pair of statement heels that can be worn with neutral looks and be the center of attention. Those always work!
A red shoe is the classic color for Christmas. That and green, metallics and sparkles. Different colors for the holidays are always a more fun option as a pop to any outfit. Go for what you know will work with your closet! If you love color, go for the color. Or if you’re more neutral, stick to what is a good time for you. Although, it never hurts to step out of your comfort zone with accessories! Last year, I went neutral on the shoes and I think I’m gonna switch that up this season!
When I say material, I mean that the texture itself is an important part of the decision. If you are in a heavy snow climate, make sure you have waterproof shoes that can withstand the snow and ice. Or maybe it’s a good idea to pack your party shoes and wear walking shoes or winter boots when you arrive. So you don’t have to ruin your holiday heels or wear them the whole time if they’re not so comfortable. Patent leather, suede, crystals and velvet are among the most popular options in regards to material. Finally, choose what will bring the right texture to your look.
